July was hell. I spent the entire month moving into my new(!!!) apartment. (Seriously. >.<) Among other work-related issues. I may rant further on the subject in a future Life Updates post.

More importantly, PR Day assignments are due next week! ohshitohshitohshit While I was gone, a Very Important Question was posed that ... honestly had not occurred to me until asked. So, in all fairness, I decided to offer that question up for debate.

PR Day participation not required. ^_~

Today's Dilema:

a) Play Sims 3, using baby versions of all the Samurai Rangers with parents and raise them into adulthood so I can build all their skills and manipulate their interests.

b) Play Sims 3, using adult versions of all the Samurai Rangers, so I can have them paired off and being sappy as soon as possible in hopes of getting inspired for fic.
And 1) throw all seven Rangers in one house while hoping my computer doesn't have a heart attack and die, so that I can play with everyone at once. Maybe. Hopefully.
Or 2) separate them into a Jayden/Lauren/Antonio house, with Antonio/Jayden fluff and sibling bonding, and a Kevin/Mike/Mia/Emily house, with social experimentation to see which of them start to pair up first without manipulation. (Always fun.) These options may inspire me for Changing Tactics.

c) Play Sims 3, using the OC Rangers I created so that I can explore making them friends and get ideas about more origin stories.

d) Watch a couple episodes of Samurai in hopes of actually getting off my ass and working on more Changing Tactics. Not that they've inspired me so far, but hey, you never know.

Things discovered on the internet today: (Mostly through my dad, who likes to e-mail me random articles/videos/animated gifs/pictures.) )

Oh, and I keep forgetting to mention that I made a Tumblr account the other day for no particular reason. So far I've linked a few things and posted pictures of Justin as the Pink Astro Ranger made long enough ago that I can't remember why I did them. If anyone's interested, I'm over here.

And chocolate scrambled eggs and veggie bacon (with coffee of course), remains the Breakfast of Champions.

In sorting files on my computer last night, I discovered that I lost one of my absolute FAVORITE icons: Wes and Erin Silver Guardian uniforms, both grinning and Wes hugging onto Eric from behind.I know [livejournal.com profile] jadetate made it for Angel, but I can't find it anywhere now. ;_; FOUND IT! \0/ (It's the first one. ♥)

On the upside, I found these on Texts from the Morphing Grid and had to share. ^.^

Antonio and Jayden
Kelsey and Chad
Gia and Emma
Wes and Jen (And so true! ♥)
Hunter and Blake (Probably not that funny, but it still made me laugh.)
Katie and Jen
Adam and Justin -Dies-

In other news, I am back to attempting my [community profile] queer_fest prompts.

... I seriously have no idea WTF is going on in this story.

Found this on Fanfic Flamingo today:

And now it occurs to me ... *does* the PR fandom have a Hogwarts AU? o.O I know we've got Harry Potter crossovers, but ... I don't recall seeing one anywhere. Of if we do, it wasn't worth noting.

Anyone have one to share? Or suggestions for/desire to make one?

[community profile] snowflake_challenge continues!

Day 4

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

1) SIBLING FLUFF. I cannot express just how much I LOVE reading about Mike and Leo being protective of one another. Or Dean and Sam. Or Scott and Alan. Or any siblings, really. I have a particular fondness for sibling relationships where the oldest sibling has a somewhat-parental role. -Points up- Clearly. I love things with protectiveness and lots of snuggles.

2) I would *love* more trailers for my stories! At the moment I have two beautiful Bright Skies trailers by JadeTate and BlackCrimsonLight. But I want more! -Is greedy- For FtD and Fractured Fates, or A Darker Shade of Red, or even To Be Green!

3) More fic! More romance for my favorite hard-to-find pairings (Shane/Dustin, Antonio/Jayden, Merrick/Cole, Ryan/Carter ... )! More stories about my favorite characters! (Justin, Dustin, R.J. ...)! MORE FLUFF! MORE I SAY!

... I think I need food.

Decided to participate in the [community profile] snowflake_challenge that's been floating around. Not for any particular reason really, except that it sounded fun. ^.^

And [personal profile] punkpinkpower may have flattered guilted me into it. ^.^;;

Day 1 )

Day 2 )

... And now I don't know if I want to write something or read all of these all over again. x.x

I have now finally, for the very first time ever, offically seen the Green With Evil saga.

And am now planning to rewrite it.

(Seriously; I already have notes.)

Shoot me.

So, I'm working on rewatching MMPR, because I was FINALLY able to snag Brother's Netflix account while he's at work. It's giving me lots of thoughts for FtD, too. ^_^

I'm also noticing a few things that I hadn't before, which leave me with many questions. )

Also, watching MMPR is making me really curious about Zyuranger. Anyone have any suggestions of where I can find it?

I posted something on the Power Rangers Facebook page a few minutes ago. It's something I've been thinking about over the past few days. I'm a little afraid they'll take it down though since it's not ... well, it doesn't exactly fit the image they project over there. Unfortunately I couldn't think of anywhere else to send it, and it was something I really wanted to do.

But just in case, I'm posting it here as well.

Thank you. )

Also, I don't know if anyone else has seen this, but [personal profile] rosabelle found this article, and [personal profile] starlit_purple linked it to me. It's written by one of the people who knew [personal profile] psyco_chick32 personally, talking about her life and who she was. It's beautiful. ♥

Versions 1 and 2 of Fade to Darkness have both been posted on AO3! ^_^V My fingers hurt now. x.x

In other news, I may be developing some form of illness, and my muses are on crack and demanding I have a PR marathon. Which I would totally be willing to do, if I had all of MMPR downloaded. Or Netflix. -Mourns Megaupload-

Oh, and Amazon SUCKS. -Glares and kicks them- Them and their stupid ridiculously overpriced shipping. >.<

But then there's this, which proves of why I love Ellen DeGeneres. She's just that awesome. ♥

Today so far:

My Samurai Zord is the Ape.

You don't stand for any monkey business...Because your Zord is the ape! You and Emily, the Yellow Ranger, are two of a kind. You are extremly determined and you love your team. You're sweet and caring, but you still know how to kick some major Nighlok butt! When it comes to training, you work hard. And you know how to fight even harder. Way to go!

I ... would not have guessed that. And I prefer to think of it as Rocky's Zord over Emily's, but that's because I'm biased. The summary kind of fits, though.

Prompt requesting makes me want fluff. Lots of fluff. And snuggly things. Which, seeing as I should be glaring at FtD's newest incarnation again, is not entirely helpful. At least yet.

Also, torturing Rangers is surprisingly hard when I'm not feeling violent or cheerful. I'm sort of inbetween, and that doesn't seem to lead to torture today. Sadness. ;_;

Just got my TurboTax prepaid card in the mail for them to deposit my tax return on. There's no money on it because the IRS is 'experiencing a delay in Federal Returns'. -Stares longingly at card-

I need more coffee.

I was staring at FtD earlier -Eyes [personal profile] psyco_chick32 warily- and found a line where Justin had originally thought 'Oh, god.' But now that I've been thinking about it, I'm finding it hard to believe Justin would actually direct any thoughts toward a higher being. Especially in FtD seeing as it's EmoJustin to the extreme, but Justin in general. (I know that Blake Foster is very Christian, but I'm thinking specifically about the character.) Between his unstable family life and being introduced to science and the Power at such a young age, I really can't see him having faith in something greater than himself.*

Which lead me to thinking about Rangers and Religion.

I blame S.P.D.

Religion in Power Rangers. )

Now I'm thinking about religion for my characters in FtD, but after mentioning the idea to [personal profile] starlit_purple, also about Rangers in canon and/or Fandom. It's a serious question, after all. For so many people, religion is a part of who you are. But would being a Ranger challenge that? The Power is a concept of science and magic, and a world outside our own. I'd like to say it wouldn't, but you never know.

That being said, I'm now seriously pondering what religion various Rangers might be. Namely for FtD, but also outside that universe. I've somewhat decided/established in the last version of FtD that Rocky was Catholic, and now that Justin is Atheist. I think Billy would probably be Atheist as well. There's a few characters I'm semi-settled for, but I'm open to arguments for or against.

Any thoughts or suggestions for various characters? Thoughts on the idea of religion in Power Rangers in general? I'm open for debate, too! (Obviously I'm bored. And curious.)

* The Power not withstanding.
** I doubt that I actually need to put this here, but when opening a can of worms:

I have respect all religion and religious people as a whole. I have no preference for what any character should believe because of my own religious and spiritual beliefs. Everyone has their own thoughts and opinions. I hope that no one feels offended and has no desire to offend anyone else in a potential debate.
